Welcome to Day Three of our Christmas Gifts in July. This pretty hat is another color work project. I am hoping that you have tried it and are hooked on this fun technique. (If you haven’t tried crochet color work yet, be sure to watch the video below, it’s easier than you think!). 

This graph is quite simple and only alternates between 2 colors, making it one of the simplest color work graphs you can find. But the finished effect is stunning!

  1. When working thr graph, do you start at the bottom right corner with the blocks of 4 blue then move to the left with 1 white and go up in rows from there? This is my first graph patteren im trying. Anyway you van make a quick video on this particular pattern?

    1. If you are right handed, yes! Work the graph from right to left. I could maybe do a video, but it wouldn’t be “quick”, haha. Videos take hours from start to finish ;)

  2. I love this pattern, but I am new to tapestry crochet. Once I get to the third color, do I have to carry the blue and the and white, or do I cut the blue and continue to carry the white yarn?

    1. You are only alternating between 2 colors at a time, so when you are done with the blue (assuming you are doing the same color scheme as me) you can just drop it and pick it up again when you need it near the top of the hat. You can cut it, but it will make more ends to weave in (you can do this if you prefer to not have the string on the inside. If you aren’t using that color again in the hat, you can cut it.

  3. At the end of every round for the body of the hat, are we supposed to sl st to the ch1 from the previous round or to the first sc. If its to the first ‘stitch’ as written in the pattern, then do we ch1 and then sc in the same stitch? Lovely pattern, thank you.

  4. Any chance you have a pattern for this for a round loom? I’m a lefty & for some reason crotchet projects just never turn out for me. They end up twisting & are too tight no matter how much I try to leave the stitches loose. I’d love to make this adorable hat but the only ones that turn out for me are done on the loom :/

  5. Ok so this pattern is gorgeous. I actually used the Caron x Pantone yarn braid (2) and I love the results! If you’re bad at putting colors together, they have a bunch of different color combos that are so pretty! I used the terrarium greens and it looks like mountains. Also, my first time doing color work and it was so easy, the explanations are clear. Thanks for a great pattern!

    1. No it’s not! but yes it can be adapted. It will be a bit a trial and error, but maybe try working 60 stitches around, repeating the graph only 10 times instead of 12. That might give you a toddler size. And then go down to 66 for an older child.

      1. I just made the hat for my 4 year old and originally did 60, it was working up too small so I pulled it out and did 66. It’s actually still pretty tight on my 4 year old, but fits my 2 year old. The fair isle pattern doesn’t have as much give/stretch as other stitches. I’m going to make a 2nd one in the original pattern size for my older child.

        The hat is gorgeous! Your pattern and video were very easy to follow. Thanks for sharing!!

        1. Thank you!I would go up a hook size or two. If it has zero stretch, you might need to loosen up with a bigger hook. The sc and carrying yarn definitely diminished the stretchiness, but it shouldn’t be tight.

  6. Hi! I’m just starting on this pattern and I’m stuck on the band. How is it 8 stitches in the second row on when you on have 7 in the patten? Am I reading the pattern wrong?

    You have:
    Ch 1. Do a hdc in same stitch. Do a hdc blo in the next 5 stitches. Do a hdc in both loops for the last stitch

  7. I love this hat! Thank you for including the videos along the way to help read the graph. It was very helpful as I have never used on before. Your explanation was perfect!

  8. I’ve made two of your hat patterns in two days. I love them! I finished this hat today and without any decreases in the top part it’s not closing well. Should I be decreasing in the last 4 rows?


  9. Ugh, how do you keep it from being too tight?!?
    I’m paying really close attention to my tension, even frogged it and went up half a hook size. Still looks and feels like it’s tightening. I’m at a 6.5mm. Should I go up to an 8mm to get this fixed?
    Tips, tricks, advice, magic wand???

    1. Mine is also doing this. I’m not losing stitches. Still at the 72. It’s just has almost no stretch in the hat body. I’m sure this is due to it being all BLO sc’s. I’ve paid attention to tension and used the correct hook size. Frustrating as I’ve put lots of time into it. 😬

      1. What yarn are you using? Some yarns are softer and have more stretch than others. I don’t think it’s because it’s work in BLO, my hat is soft and stretchy. Did you make a gauge swatch?

        1. I used Hobby Lobby I love this yarn. I’ve made probably 15-20 of your Snowfall Slouchy with the same yarn and haven’t had any issues at all with the hat being tight, using the exact same yarn. 🤷🏼‍♀️ I will just try this one again with a bigger hook! 😊

          1. I’m having the same issue. Did the bigger hook solve the problem? I’m about to try my 2nd hat and would love to hear your results before starting. Thank you!!

          2. Unfortunately it was still on the tight side. I’ve been crocheting for many years, and consider myself an advanced crocheter but I finally gave up. 🤦🏼‍♀️ I figured it was just not meant to be for me! 🤪

  10. Your numbers and graph, don’t line up….. You only have 24 squares for the vertical count. I can figure this out, been crocheting 50 yrs. but any new people might have trouble with it

      1. Thank you, I really adore this pattern! My question is a bit more specific than I indicated previously. My adult daughter has a head size of 20”, mine is 22”. We wear the same size hat in knitted products, but we cannot wear the same size hat in crochet due to the limited stretch. According to your gauge it looks like it will come out to 20 inches and I’m guessing have a stretch to about 22. So, if I needed to go down a bit in size I would have to go down a smaller size in my hook. That sound correct?

          1. I was actually able to measure the band on my nieces head and I’m going to make hers first. I am using 60 stitches rather than 72, I’m using a size H hook and I am using the suoer soft Baby Bee yarn which is a #3. If it looks funky, I will go down to hook sizes and try to reach for the 72 stitches.

  11. So cute! Do you happen to know what colors you used for this hat? I have a request for this hat exactly the way it is lol

  12. is there a printable version? I don’t mind paying for it. I cant seem to print this and I love the pattern
